Public Service Board Issues Geprags Park Natural Gas Pipeline Decision
The Public Service Board (PSB) issued its final order in the eminent domain proceedings in which Vermont Gas is seeking to run the Addison Natural Gas Pipeline through Geprags Park. The PSB’s decision allows Vermont Gas to “take” the easement by eminent domain and run the pipeline underneath the park through the use of horizontal directional drilling.

The PSB’s decision included a statement that it did not approve or otherwise address the Revised Stipulation (the agreement worked out between the Select Board and Vermont Gas). The PSB’s decision places upon the easement itself a value of $3,400; Vermont Gas and the Town are considering the revised stipulation to be a contractual arrangement through which Vermont Gas will be expected to fulfill all of the terms related to funding ($250,000), the Richmond Road to North Road distribution line extension, performance bond, and other components critical to reaching an agreement. The fate of the easement deed as agreed upon is less certain, based on the final order. The final order can be found below:

Please send comments or questions to the Town Administrator's office.
